Desaad is a slick torturer working for Darkseid and a villain in the Superman series.

In The Super Powers Team: Galactic Guardians and in Justice League, he was voiced by the late René Auberjonois.

Biography

Desaad was once an innocent New God from New Genesis until he was corrupted by Darkseid. Darkseid lied to Desaad that the boy's bird was killed by his cat. Angered, Desaad was tricked into killing the cat to avenge his pet bird. After avenging his bird, Desaad went to Apokolips to become Darkseid's sadistic torturer & majordomo. He helped Darkseid kill Drax and take control of Apokolips. Later, Desaad worked with Bruno Mannheim and the Intergang to meet Darkseid's crimes on Earth.

The most sadistic and cruel member of Darkseid’s Elite has to be Desaad. The official tormentor and torturer of Darkseid’s Elite, DeSaad is a natural coward who revels in the pain and torment of others. Serving Darkseid out of fear, DeSaad never going against his master unless someone else does, so he can have some sense of deniability.

DeSaad has been known to train the New Gods of Apokolips. He nearly lost his life to the Source Wall and serves Darkseid in many of his plots, including the Final Crisis, where he possessed Mary Marvel. DeSaad is immortal, super strong, telepathic, and a master creator of weapons and torture devices.

Kalibak offered to kill Superman himself but Darkseid refused. Seeing this, Desaad manipulated Kalibak into going to Earth to kill Superman, claiming if he succeeded, Darkseid would accept Kalibak as his son. Kalibak agreed and went to Earth to fight the Man of Steel. Darkseid later learned that Kalibak left for Earth and punished him for his failure.
